Science Leadership Programmes

The Africa Science Leadership Programme (ASLP) aims to grow excellent mid-career African academics in the areas of collective leadership, team and research development and science-society engagement, with the intention of enabling them to solve the complex issues facing both Africa and the global community.

The programme creates a lasting network of science leaders on the continent, spanning not only across countries, but also across disciplinary boundaries. It develops and awareness and curriculum for leadership development in academia that can be applied in other institutions in Africa and beyond and will create a focal point for connection with science leadership training programmes in other parts of the world.

The ASLP was launched in 2015 in collaboration with the Global Young Academy and various African Young Academies and with funding from the Bosch Foundation. It is an example of the types of programmes that Future Africa will develop.

As an extension of the ASLP programme, a university based programme is also being developed. A pilot of this programme was launched at the University of Pretoria at the end of 2015, as the Tuks Young Research Leaders Programme (TYRLP).
